Yavapai County Drops

Residential Dog Limit Proposal, 4/3/15

Yavapai County Proposed Animal Ordinance H15016--WITHDRAWN   

 The presentations on the proposed Yavapai County animal ordinance change to limit dogs to five per single family residence have been cancelled.  Yapavai County Development Services is not going forward with this proposal.  The scheduled meeting at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station for April 22nd has been cancelled.   The proposed ordinance will not be on the Lake Montezuma POA agenda for Monday, April 6. 

 At this time Yavapai County intends to utilize a more positive application of current codes on property management and health and sanitation for animal hoarding situations.  Commercial puppy breeders located on residential property are already required to have use permits which will be enforced.  Complaints about vicious animals will be directed to the Yavapai Sheriff's Office.                      - The Calendar Crew

Animal Control

Beaver Creek Transit, (the Beaver Buggy), celebrated its third anniversary on January 3, 2014. Three years of bringing free (donations appreciated) transportation to seniors and those of all ages with disabilities.  Thanks to volunteers and LMPOA and BC Adult Center sponsorship the years have passed quickly. Now BCT is ready to move forward with phase 2, a link to the new Yavapai Apache Transit (YAT)

Pedestrian Bridge Scheduled

For Lake Montezuma

The two attachments are the information presented by Yavapai County and Atkins Engineering at the public meeting held at the Adult Center on March 19th.  The concept is for a pedestrian bridge to be constructed over Wet Beaver Creek on the downstream side of the vehicle bridge with sidewalks and crosswalks for safe access to Sycamore Park. Later construction of pathways along existing roads would link the bridge to the Rimrock commercial area.  

The documents present two separate bridge design proposals. Both designs would be strong, wide and sturdy enough to allow transit of an ambulance or other light duty emergency emergency vehicle in the event the concrete bridge is closed. Locked but removable bollards at either end of the bridge, spaced wide enough for wheel chairs and baby strollers, and signing on the bridge would prevent all public motorized vehicle use at any time.

Community members attending the meeting were asked to choose a preferred design. A majority of those present felt the arched design would be a better fit in the area. Final design work is under way now as are required studies of impact to threatened wildlife species. Construction of the bridge is expected to begin no later than September 1st of this year with completion of the bridge by October 31st.

State of the 

    Golf Course     

In 2004 Beaver Creek Land & Water LLC purchased the Beaver Creek Golf Course and Ranch House Restaurant.   Later that year the company received rezoning approval from Yavapai County to carve out parcels from the course to sell separately for the construction of up to 150 condo units. The new owners  expressed in writing through their lawyer that the sale of these parcels would be used to improve and support the golf course and restaurant operations. The improvement of the irrigation system and greens was to have begun in spring 2005. That did not happen, but the parcels were platted for condos in a subdivision called Villas at Beaver Creek which was accepted by Yavapai County.
